How to prepare your motorcycle for shipping
Before we can ship your motorcycles to the requested destinations, we usually tell our customers to prepare the machines in advance to avoid delays. If you don’t know what to do, here are the steps:
- Maintenance checks are done to expose and repair any faults on your motorcycle.
- Washing is a must to hasten clearance at the customs and uncover all damages.
- The tire pressure cushions the motorcycle from shock when the truck shakes.
- The engine conditions should be checked to ensure all mechanical operations work well.
- Motorcycle accessories that are fragile, hanging or loose should be secured to avoid damages.
- Inspection of the present condition of the motorcycle is advised. Document all the marks and blemishes.
- Draining fluids reduces the risk of corrosion and fire accidents.
- Disconnecting the battery from the motorbike is a precautionary measure to avoid acid from spilling on and burning surfaces.
- Disabling alarm devices prevents them from going off while on the move.
What to look for in a motorcycle shipping company
- The company you want to use for shipping must be licensed and must have undergone serious screening by government agencies. That permit shows that they have passed all the required tests from the US Department of Transportation.
- Look up the reviews of users who have used the shipping service before. Take their contact information and reach out to them. This is to ensure that what is written on the shipper’s website is indeed the correct thing. Through this hack, you will not fall into avoidable traps.
- Choose to partner with shippers with a great deal of experience. Companies that have stayed longer in the business are the ones who have the required skills and knowledge.
